I would like to welcome you back for the 2014-2015 school year. I hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year.
I am delighted to have been selected as the principal of Creighton Elementary School and anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of success. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members.
Over the last fourteen years, I have had the pleasure of serving the students of the Creighton School District as a teacher, Title I Facilitator, and assistant principal. As an administrator I have encouraged students and teachers to meet their fullest potential by providing an environment that is safe, values diversity, and encourages problem-solving collaboration. I believe my background and educational philosophy are aligned with Creighton's vision and I am excited about the wonderful opportunities that lie ahead.
I look forward to meeting everyone at our Meet Your Teacher Night on Friday, August 1, from 3:00-5:00 p.m.. Classroom assignments will be posted.
School begins on Monday, August 4, 2014 at 7:25 a.m. and classroom assignments will be posted on campus on August 1st. Our first bell will ring at 7:25 a.m. with the second bell at 7:40 a.m. to signal the start of the school day. Dismissal will be at 3:05 p.m. every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday our dismissal time will be at 1:05 p.m. to allow teachers to participate in professional development.
When you and your child/ren arrive on August 4th please proceed to the K-4 or 5th-8th playgrounds where your child's teacher will be waiting to meet their class. Each teacher will have a sign with the room number of their class for easy identification. When the bell rings, teachers will take their classes to the classroom. Please help us reduce traffic congestion and confusion by saying goodbye to your child at the gate or the lineup area.
I am happy to announce that our enrollment continues to grow. We are still accepting enrolling applications for our kindergarten classes so please spread the word among your family members and friends. We will continue to make every effort to serve the residents of Creighton School.
I look forward to working with all of you and I hope you enjoy the final days of summer!
Mr. Ivan Carvajal
